“For New Contemporaries to be once again at the ICA makes perfect sense and it is a thrill for the artists taking part to have their work in a venue with such a rich and vibrant history. Between November and January this year the ICA will be alive with the work of the 49 artists selected for 2010 New Contemporaries and it will be an important moment for emerging art practice and debate in this country.” — Rebecca Heald, Director, New Contemporaries

New Contemporaries was originally presented at the ICA between 1964 and 1989 when a series of highly acclaimed exhibitions aimed to reflect the shape of art to come and offer young artists the chance to exhibit at an organisation associated with radical, bold and experimental art forms.

“The support of emergent talent has always been one of the most important responsibilities for the ICA and we have a long history of presenting debut shows and early exhibitions from some of the most significant and influential artists working today. Our relationship with New Contemporaries goes back to the 1960s when we established regular presentations that continued over a couple of decades. We are delighted now to be working together again and to develop new ways of contextualising the work to enrich the experience for audiences, artists and institution.”

— Ekow Eshun, ICA Director

The highly regarded New Contemporaries exhibition is a snapshot of today's emerging art landscape featuring 49 artists working across film, sculpture, photography, painting, animation and performance. Offering unparalleled access to new practice and ideas from across the UK, this exhibition sits at the heart of a dynamic and discursive programme of discussions, workshops and performances for both artists and audiences.

The selectors for 2010 are Gabriel Kuri, Mark Leckey and Dawn Mellor.
